Othello High School students and staff celebrated the end of their semester and the school year with a super student assembly complete with spotlights, the red carpet and plenty of high praise the Friday morning just before the long Memorial Day weekend. A teacher from each academics department had to choose just one student from the many worthy candidates and gave the audience speeches listing the different ways these 19 particular students went above and beyond these past few months at OHS. Vice Principal John Covell represented the administration and awarded senior Karina Silva with the first award of the morning. Covell also awarded Zaiden Avila with an award. Tari Perez granted the business education award to Citalli Rodriguez-Carcilazo, followed by Jennifer Mason who awarded Sydney Taylor for agriculture.
